Temple Grandin, Martha Graham, Henry Ford, Buckminster Fuller-- all have lessons to offer about how the love for doing one thing exceptionally well can lead to mastery. Yet the secret, Greene maintains, is already in our heads. Debunking long-held cultural myths, he demonstrates just how we, as humans, are hardwired for achievement and supremacy. For fans of Greene's earlier work and Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers.

A rather disappointing book: its quite repetitive and uses anecdotes rather than science to fulfill its purpose. The notes and bibliography are also haphazard.

This book uses a lot of relevant anecdotes and case studies.

I wanted to love this book...but couldn't !! I borrowed this tome after reading favorable reviews on Amazon. Mr. Greene apparently has a "cultish" following, who strongly endorse his every word...me, not so !! According to the author, "Mastery" is apparently achieved through long hours of dedication to one's craft and the more one enjoys said craft the better, to which I say, " no kidding" ! There was nothing in the book that was either prescient nor innovative and frankly, nothing was really interesting. Even the profiles of "masters" as diverse as Da Vinci, Bill Bradley and Freddy Roach, are boring and less informative than need be to support the idea of mastery. If one is looking for places to "improve" oneself or get insight to doing so, I doubt you'll find it here, in fact, try "The Power of Habit".
